Yes I'm interested to hear about the SOH of the battery if you know what percentage of it's driving was done in NT?
Also, there looks to be damage on the drivers front door and passenger rear door only, what kind of accident was it in as the front and rear don't look damaged?
What are your plans for it, fix and drive, or use for parts only?

It was a Demo car from Oueensland truck up to Darwin around 2013 with about 100 to 110km range on it, I first view this about late 2015 with the range being around the 93km mark, today the range is about 55km.

The car never been in an accident, the owner put a solar panel on the front bonnet to charge the car battery 12 volt which wasn't really required hence holes all over it.

I did put an offer down someone must of put a higher offer down and was glad it was picked up as it was sitting for 6 months doing nothing.

Ah ok, thanks.
How much did you offer for it? They are going for $9k to $11k down here in NSW.

It went for $3000 at the end, I didn't want to offer that much for it knowing that the battery range has dipped a lot, I knew if I had to put a 2nd hand battery in would of been another $8K to do that where I'm living etc. $3000 is still a bargain.

$3k is a bargain if only for the motor and charging electronics etc.
